    Pros

    ok, no promotion just more money if you make more sales.

    Cons

    your only worth your weekly sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    appreciate your sales staff and get them more help recruiting for orders instead of doing management reports.

    I worked at AppleOne full-time

    Pros

    You do get paid on time

    Cons

    No work life balance and long hours in the office and then again at home pulling down resumes and talking to candidates/clients after hours. This is a churn and burn environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more realistic as to what the job really entails, have them meet with current recruiters individually to get the real picture of expectations.

    I have been working at AppleOne as a contractor (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    It's great to work with this type of recruiter, because they know where all the jobs are. I couldn't possibly reach out to as many contacts on my own.

    Cons

    Assignments are presented whether they exist or not. Meaning-you may waste half a day and your best suit on an empty promise. In addition, temp-to-hire usually means "temp"

    I worked at AppleOne full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I found no "pros" working at Appleone

    Cons

    Hired as a Staffing Manager, then 6 months into the job was forced to be an Account Manager and my salary was cut by $7,000 per year. For someone like myself who has been in the staffing industry, this was a "slap in the face". If I had known this was going to happen, I would have never left the job. Appleone was so focused on an applicants previous employment history, aka "Sales", they lost a "major" client/account and didn't give the attention that was needed to sustain the account but instead, kept the focus on "Sales". I would not recommend Appleone to anyone. The practices need to be reviewed. I immediately left the company after I was "demonted" in a sense. How can a company be successful with such high turnaround of their own employees? It sounds like there is no lesser of 2 evils when it comes to various Appleone offices in different states, they're all the same. Going to an Appleone office is a "waste of time".

    I worked at AppleOne full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very professional, they paid regularly and the company itself is solid.

    Cons

    Quick turn over of recruiters behind the desk and it seemed like they didn't have time to train them very well. The woman I got assigned to didn't seem to know what to do with my skill set, but on the up side, I ended up getting a great full-time temp position on a fluke. The downside was that after that contract ran out I didn't get offered anything else, even though I got rave reviews from the place I worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train recruiters to look beyond resumes and ask good questions to learn more about the potential valuable staff member sitting in the chair in front of them. Value mature workers with experience.

    Pros

    Experience, exposure and to learn to work and learn from adversity and poor management.

    Cons

    Very Low pay, complicated intentional confusing commission structure to confuse employees and to have the ability to retain and pull commissions without clear visibility/transparency. Not much upward mobility. Experience not valued. Highest internal employee turnover I've ever seen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Choose your leaders wisely, especially your senior leaders.

    Room for growth. The CEO and majority of the management team are awesome to work with and take the time to provide additional training for you to succeed.

    Some departments were unorganized and did not work well together due to personality clashes.

    Keep doing a great job!
